BARR 9th Grade Program

Beaumont High School is excited to launch the Building Assets, Reducing Risks (BARR) Program for our Freshman.  BARR provides schools with a comprehensive, intentional approach to meeting students’ academic, social, and emotional needs.  At the core of the BARR program are eight interconnected research-based strategies that provide a wide-ranging structure and support system.  In the BARR model, teachers are placed in teams.  Each team consists of three core-subject teachers (math, science, and English).  BARR helps educators build safe, strong, trusting relationships with their students and paves the way for every student to engage in learning.


Ninth grade is a crucial year for all students and Beaumont High School strongly believes this extra layer of support for our ninth-grade students will assist with ensuring they achieve academic and social success throughout their Freshman year.


BARR helps to...

1. Reduce academic failures
2. Reduce alcohol, tobacco, and other drug use
3. Reduce disciplinary incidents
4. Increase attendance
5. Increase the average number of assets among 9th-grade students
